situation room". >>> president obama says his re-election proves that americans want action on the economy, not just politics as usual: just days after his victory, he's laying out a framework for compromise with the republicans to avoid $600 billion in automatic spending cuts and tax hikes in the next year. he says he's open to new ideas, but he warns the federal government can't cut its way to prosperity. >> if we're serious about reducing the deficit, we have to combine spending cuts with revenue. and that means asking the wealthest americans to pay a little more in taxes. that's how we did it -- that's how we did it in the 1990s when bill clinton was president. that's how we can reduce the deficit while still making the investments we need to build a strong middle class and a strong economy. that's the only way we can still afford to train our workers or help our kids pay for college, or make sure that good jobs and clean energy or high-tech manufacturing don't end up in countries like china. now, already i've put forward a detailed plan that allows us to make these investments while r

term will be how does he get some kind of bipartisan momentum going, particularly on the economy and this is your wheelhouse right now. you've got some pretty firm ideas about how to prevent the fiscal cliff becoming a reality. tell me about that. >> well, we need to avoid the fiscal cliff. as the nonpartisan congressional budget office said, it will reduce gdp by almost 3% and keep in mind it's only 2% now so that means going negative, going back to recession. they predicted that unemployment would go back over 9% which would be terrible, obviously, and many other negative consequences. so they should do at least a temporary extension so they can buy themselves a little time for the new congress to get organized and new administration to get settled, and then get this thing solved as quickly as possible after that. so with the financial services roundtable, we asked them to bridge over with some extensions but then tackle it. that's going to have to include the president stepping forward and willingness to reform entitlement programs and on the republican side, they'll need to l
